The Research and Evaluation Center at John Jay College, supported by OJJDP, has released “Durable Collaborations: The National Forum on Youth Violence Prevention.” This report is based on a survey of community leaders in the 15 cities participating in the National Forum on Youth Violence Prevention on their perceptions and attitudes about youth violence prevention. The report highlights their belief that the Forum develops greater opportunities for youth, more effective violence prevention approaches, improved perceptions of law enforcement, and a broader engagement of community members.
